San Diego homeowners, especially those living in what many refer to as “cookie cutter” tract homes, are always looking for ways to add interest to their homes–something that will help make a home feel special and stand out in a neighborhood.
One way homeowners can help make a home more unique is by installing specialty windows, and one of the more popular options is garden windows.
Garden windows are a type of specialty window that projects outward from the wall similar to a bay window. The center pane of glass is typically fixed, while the two side panes are single hung or casement windows, which open and close for ventilation. Garden windows are a great option for creating a small, indoor greenhouse area for plants, as they provide tons of sunlight.
Usually found in residential kitchens, garden windows are perfect areas for indoor plants, such as herbs used in cooking, to thrive and soak up the sun. If plants aren’t your thing, you can display photos and other home decor in them. The main benefits to garden windows are the depth they can add to a small room or interior space and the huge amount of natural sunlight and fresh air they allow to fill your space. They often contain a shelf in the middle for additional storage.
Garden windows are considered a desirable upgrade for San Diego homes, adding instant architectural interest to whatever room they are installed in. They are available in standard and custom sizes to fit almost any home.
If you’ve been considering updating your home’s windows, you should know that you don’t just have to replace your windows with the same styles that are already there. Take the opportunity to think about how you can upgrade your windows in a way that will make your home more interesting, more functional, and maybe even more valuable on the market, and consider specialty window products like garden windows.
